Caffeine and Gasoline

By Mark Adams

Old Car

It’s a car lover’s dream at the Sumter Cut Rate Drugstore and Soda Fountain, the second oldest restaurant in the state since 1935. Each year the restaurant hosts the Annual Caffeine and Gasoline Car & Motorcycle Show. The event benefits the Sumter County Military display, and the remainder of the proceeds is used to buy grocery store gift cards for military personnel and veterans. ETV Sumter shows us what the event is all about. This year the event takes place on October 27.

In 1756, Catawba Indians fought alongside George Washington during the French and Indian War. King Hagler signed the Treaty of Pine Tree Hill in 1760, which provided a reservation for the Catawba.
